The Youth Employment Scheme offers young jobseekers who lack experience voluntary work experience placements.

Youth Employment Scheme

‘You know the saying – Can’t get a job without experience? Can’t get experience without a job?’

There are a number of young people in this situation. A lack of understanding of the working world is a significant barrier to them finding and keeping employment.  Will you work with the Employment Service to help these young people?  Simply contact your local Jobs and Benefits office or Job Centre to get involved. Our Adviser team will be happy to provide further information and explain how you can become a Work Experience Host. You can telephone our Employer Engagement Team on 028 9025 2312 or your local office on 0300 200 7822 You can find us online at or visit any of our offices.
